What is EncFSMP?
A program to mount EncFS folders on Windows and OS X. Works good with LibreOffice documents on Windows 7.
Features of EncFSMP:
- Mounts EncFS folders on Windows and OS X
- Can create, edit, export and change the password of EncFS folders
- Is 100% compatible with EncFS 1.7.4 on Linux
- Completely free, no nags, no additional downloads like toolbars etc.
With EncFS MP, you can store your data in an encrypted folder. This is especially important if you store your sensitive data in a cloud service like Dropbox or Google Drive. Since EncFS exists on many platforms, you can access your data from a Windows PC, from an Apple computer, from Linux (using the built-in EncFS), or even from an Android device (using Cryptonite).
Although EncFSMP is an open source project and its source code is released under the MIT license, it contains a closed-source component. The file system component that allows EncFSMP volumes to be mounted is called Pismo File Mount and is developed by Pismo Technic Inc.. Other than that, EncFSMP is 100% open source.
Status of the project: The current release is considered beta software. This means that this program may contain serious bugs. Therefore, always store important data in a backup location.

During several years I used a PC with Linux and gnome-encfs-manager as a file / folder encryptor. As I bought a new PC with Windows 10, I installed EncFSMP on it because that was the only encfs encryptor I found. It is rather good, works like gnome-encfs-manager, and once you understand how it works, that's all right. However, if for some reason you are away from home and you phone a family member to find an important document that you put in a encfs container that is not listed in the EncFSMP interface, he will have to import this container, this is not so evident if he does not know the soft.
I tried to copy encfs folders from EDS lite (on my android phone) to my PC with Windows, importing them in EncfsMP. The txt files were decrypted and readable in first lines only (sometimes 2 or 3, sometimes about 10). The solution was that txt files had to be encoded and saved in utf8 with BOM (in notepad++). Another difficulty is that Filezilla transfers the containers (using a ftp server on android) but sometimes refuses to transfer some files. I had to resume the transfer for them. At least, I could open my EDS lite containers with EncFSMP, which seems to be the only soft in Windows for encfs encrypting.
